    Re Lance’s tweet on the glitches in the Groove website, I was also puzzled by the copyright notice at the bottom: “Magic Broadcasting II, LLC to © 2013 Trustees of Dartmouth College” What’s the connection between this station in Panama City and New Hampshire’s Ivy League school?

      I researched that as well when I saw it. There aren’t any connections between Magic Broadcasting and Dartmouth that I can find. What I believe happened is the company that they use to manage their websites cloned Groove’s site off of the one for Dartmouth’s 99.3 WFRD: http://www.wfrd.com/

      A few other Intertech Media built site’s have that Dartmouth copyright as well: http://www.centraltexasbeat.com/ and http://www.basinsradio.com/ among them.

        Or perhaps Dartmouth’s station holds the copyright to the design, but the web company is allowed to use it elsewhere. Anyhow, adding confusion to blanks in the content on launch day isn’t what I’d think a station would prefer.
